Amber Alchalabi's 'Bachelor' fracas continues with resignation flip-flop

By Christopher Rocchio, 05/11/2007 

The Texas elementary school principal caught in The Bachelor: Officer and a Gentleman bachelorette and fourth-grade teacher Amber Alchalabi's recent time off fracas has had some conflicting thoughts on whether she should stay or she should go in recent days.

Colony Bend Elementary School principal Tammie Carpenter was reassigned and demoted from her position for allowing the recently rejected Alchalabi -- a fourth-grade teacher at the school -- a 22-school day absence to compete on The Bachelor's tenth installment.  While she resigned rather than face the punishment from the Fort Bend Independent School District, Carpenter apparently had a change of heart.

"The district accepted her resignation upon receipt," district spokeswoman Mary Ann Simpson told the website FortBendNow, which reports on Fort Bend County, TX, on Wednesday.  "Now she has sent the district information that she does not want to resign." 

Given the support Carpenter had reportedly received support from parents of Colony Bend Elementary School students, Timothy Jenney, the district's superintendent, was mulling over the idea of rescinding the resignation,

"[Jenney] is meeting with some of the Colony Bend Elementary parents [on Wednesday night] at their request," Simpson told FortBendNow.  "There will be no decisions or action taken [at the meeting]."

However following that meeting, Carpenter apparently reversed course once again, as she has rescinded her own request for reinstatement, Houston's KTRK-TV ABC television affiliate reported Friday.

"[Carpenter's] attorney tells us [Jenney] made some untruthful statements during a meeting with parents Wednesday night and she will not work for someone like that," KTRK-TV reported.

Somewhat amazingly, the ABC affiliate also reported "no one from Fort Bend Independent School District" has ever said Alchalabi would be punished, although the ousted bachelorette admitted her continued employment at Colony Bend for the 2007-2008 school year has also not been discussed.
